Morley Player Profile: Michelle Chambless

Hole 6Michelle ChamblessNickname: "Meesh" PDGA#: Not yet, next year for sure Division: Rec/Intermediate Women

Began Playing Disc Golf: December 2008. My husband Dale (aKa "Godfather") became quickly addicted to disc golf and I had to see what all the hullabaloo was about. Now I am successfully addicted and have introduced 3 other women to the game

First Disc: Borrowed -  175 Yellow champion Beast, Owned - 175 Pink & Gray Star Destroyer

Favorite Hole at Morley: 11 - Fun hole, shooting down hill like 5 without the head wind. Short positions are Ace-able and long positions are SUPER challenging (especially through the double mandy)

Morley Field Aces: Not yet!

Favorite Disc : 175 Champion Road Runner - I'm on my second one (lost my first one in the Lake at the El Do Open). Just flies right for me almost everytime

Favorite Driver: 150 R-Pro Boss - This disc is awesome! Flies FOREVER. My husband showed me how to Haizer Flip and now I can drive past the pyramid on 5 :0)

Favorite Midrange: 175 DX Cro - Stable enough to always come back

Favorite Putter: 170 R-Pro Aviar - Soft enough to stick in the chains, sturdy enough to get it there

Favorite Disc Golf Website: - It's like social networking for the disc golf world, LOVE it

Favorite Pro Player: Just like good potato chips, I can't pick just 1 :0) Fave's include: Carlo Pelg, Kent La Gree, Daniel "Big D" Lichtman, Kevin "KG" Gomez - ALL of these guys have contributed to my quick success in disc golf and I admire them all

Tips for newer players and players looking to improve: Learn to throw flat first! I've taught/coached several people and that is the #1 thing I start them off with. Play with angles after you have more experience, start out flat!
